    To the Sedwick family, our prayers are with you as you face this season of life. I pray that you can find comfort in the following Scripture;
    Isaiah 43:2,3
    When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
    We love you all
    In Christ Love
